THE MYSTERIES OF YHWH: ARE THEY REVEALED OR HIDDEN?
THE MYSTERIES, NATURE, PURPOSE AND TO WHOM THEY ARE REVEALED: To YAHWEH be the glory!
Yhwh's wrath is coming on the disobedient and many are blinded by the things of this world while distracted from, or with little faith in, Yhwh's Word. They are also blinded by wicked people for whom Yhwh's wrath is coming!
Let's begin by reading this revealing passage from Isaiah 46:9-13: "Remember the former things of old: for I am Yhwh, and there is none else; I am Elohim, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it. Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness: I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory."
We read that Yhwh declares the future from the beginning, and again He states it in Isaiah 48:3-7, "I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass. Because I knew that thou art obstinate, and thy neck is an iron sinew, and thy brow brass; I have even from the beginning declared it to thee; before it came to pass I shewed it thee: lest thou shouldest say, Mine idol hath done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, hath commanded them.
"Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it?
"I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them. They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when thou heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them."
Brethren, those that love Yhwh's Word know that Yawshua is Yhwh Elohim come in the flesh. Those who deny Him do not get the spirit of prophecy. He created all things and without Him nothing was formed. He spoke creation into existence and is the I AM. Furthermore, Yawshua is the Word of Yhwh made flesh as the volume of 66 books written by 40 authors over thousands of years are literally written of Him and renown through history as the testimony of the prophets of old through Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit.
That Kodesh Word is given to us as the Sacred Scriptures and is the literal Word of Yhwh interpreted through the writings of the prophets, revealing the promised understanding of the times surrounding Yahwshua's coming and understood through the reading of the Scriptures with guidance by the author, the Ruach Ha Kodesh.
Yahwshua was crucified, a blameless sacrifice, to take the sins of the world on Him in death and was raised three days later victorious over death and hell for all eternity. He loves us enough to offer the free gift of eternal life with Him if we believe. The Ha Kodesh Spirit is a free gift to any who believe this. Those who refuse this only way of salvation available will get their request of separation from the One True Elohim for all eternity. Yhwh is love and love is selfless, separation from Him is eternal absence of the following fruits of the Ruach:
Galatians 5:22-24 says: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Yahwshua's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts."
It is our joy to share how Yhwh's glory is declared through the understanding of Scripture prophecy written in the Kodesh Word of Yhwh. That is the goal of this group of studies, to awaken the end-time bride of Mashiach to the understanding of the times in which we live.
Who else can tell the end from the beginning? No one else. Only the Elohim of Abraham, Yitzaak, and Yacob.
1 Thessalonians 5:14-28 "Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feeble-minded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
"Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of Yhwh in Yahwshua Ha Mashiach concerning you. "Quench not the Ruach. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very Elohim of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray Elohim your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Master Yahwshua Ha Mashiach. "Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. Brethren, pray for us. Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss. I charge you by Elohim that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren. The grace of our Master Yahwshua Ha Mashiach be with you. Amen."
1 Corinthians 14:1-5 "Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto Yhwh: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the kehilah. I would that ye all spake with tongues but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the kehilah may receive edifying."
2 Peter 1:19-21 "We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of Yhwh spake as they were moved by the Ruach Ha Kodesh."
John 14:26 "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit of Yhwh, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you."
Amos 3:7 "Surely Yhwh Elohim will do nothing, except he first revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets."
Mark 13:22,23 "For false Mashiachs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the very elect. But take ye heed: behold,I have foretold you all things."
1 Thessalonians 5:1-6 "But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of Yhwh so cometh as a thief in the night. "For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober."
Yhwh's wrath is coming on the disobedient and many are blinded by the things of this world while distracted from, or with little faith in, Yhwh's Word.
They are also blinded by wicked people for whom Yhwh's wrath is coming!
This is what we in the Kehilah know the importance of this is and why we place importance on watching what is going on so that Yhwh's servants can alert those with 'ears to hear' what we are seeing happen in Scripture and around us.
We are not of this world, but we are the salt and light of it. Abba Yhwh's faithful servants believe that understanding what is really going on in the world right now, in light of Scriptural prophecy, will be an adrenalin shot to the heart of all who believe the Word of Yhwh.
May it bring you greater faith and hope and love to share with those around you.If you believe the Scriptures is Yhwh's Word, Yhwh will show you what we've been shown in reading it. Revelation 19:10 tells us that the testimony of Yahwshua is the spirit of prophecy, and being the Word made flesh, the whole Holy Scriptures is written of Him.
He is returning and has told His friends what He is doing, revealing it throughout His Kodesh Word as written by the prophets moved by His True Spirit. He has not returned yet and He foretold of His second coming with sudden destruction. Matthew 24:36-39 | Luke 17:24-31
He also warned of deception in the end-times, Matthew 24:23-28, which is why we in the Kehilah keep Yhwh's Word as the foundation of our understanding for what is to come.
The Eternal Elohim always does things in accordance with His Word, which never changes. While not every detail of history is apparent, there is a framework that revolves around Yhwh's chosen people, the called-out of Israel. As we will see, there are many prophecies in scripture that are yet unfulfilled, but we believe you will see it is in the process of being fulfilled right now.
So while not every detail is readily apparent, we know Yhwh's way from His Word and so our actions whether in accordance with His Word or contrary to it, will produce an expected result because Yhwh has made known the benefits and consequences of our actions whether aligned with or against His Kodesh Eternal Word respectively.
1 Corinthians 14:29-33 "Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.
"And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. [The Kodesh Scripture interprets itself] For Yhwh is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all kehilhot of the kodeshim."
John 15:12-20 "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his master doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
"Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, He may give it you.
"These things I command you, that ye love one another. If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
"Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also."
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 "But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of Yhwh so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
"But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
"But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For Yhwh hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Master Yahwshua Ha Mashiach, who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do. Watch!"
Matthew 25:1-13 "Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. "And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. "And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: a nd the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Master, Master, open to us."
Matthew 7:13-23 "But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh."Read about other related warnings in Matthew 24:36-44, Mark 13:32-37, Luke 12:16-40, Luke 21:34-36, Hebrews 9:28
Acts 17:11 "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
This study covers known history and Scripture prophecies that are fulfilled from the destruction of Jerusalem by Babylon all the way up to today. It will be best if you start studying from the 70 weeks of Daniel and move to the last one for further Scripture studies that add to the understanding of the big picture. The 70 weeks of Daniel connects the end time scenario spoken of by Yahwshua in Matthew 24 to the prophecy given to Daniel regarding Israel's future.
We hope that this most of all leads to you reading the Word of Yhwh personally and taking it for truth, bringing you to a closer relationship with your Creator, and His Son Yahwshua. To His future Kings and Priests He has given the honor of disclosing what Yhwh conceals:
Proverbs 25:2 "It is the glory of Yhwh to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter."
Revelation 1:3-6 "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; And from Yahwshua Ha Mashiach, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto Yhwh and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen".
